Hello and welcome to Home Tech Property Inspections, LLC.

Home Tech is owned and operated by myself Mike Spano. I have been in related fields of expertise for over 25 years. Including commercial property management, Real Estate investing (home flips) and a career with a national corporation in the dismantling industry where I learned everything from the inside out.

When hiring a home inspector experience is everything. As you know, here in New England we pride ourselves on our long housing history. With that history comes many older homes in a range of styles. My experience provides consistency in what to look for in each type of home whether new or old.

I follow the MA Standards of Practice for Home Inspectors as published (see link provided) and also the National Standards of Practice in RI (see ASHI link). Currently Rhode Island has no Published Standards of Practice or Home Inspection Licenses required to perform home inspections. Always hire a licensed and seasoned professionally trained home inspector. I hold a Massachusetts Home Inspector License #1007 and perform home inspections in both MA and RI

I am a licensed and trained home inspector certified by the Association of home inspectors Training Program (AHIT see link). I am also a Certified Inspector grade member in good standing with the American Society of home Inspectors, (see ASHI link). This means you will receive a comprehensive home inspection and report (with pictures) that will provide you with all the information and tools needed to make the educated decisions needed when purchasing your new home.

I welcome you to walk through the inspection with me while I answer any questions you may have. My goal is to ensure you have no surprises after moving in, understand how to operate and maintain your new property and provide you with a report (with pictures) that will help you negotiate any major issues we uncover prior to the final sale.

I am always available to answer questions or address concerns “even after the inspection is completed”. That means you have a go to guy, down the line, in the event you need a qualified opinion regarding issues with your new home.

So before you make the largest purchase of your life, have it inspected by a licensed home inspector. It’s a relatively small investment for the continued services and pre-sale information you receive. Simply Call or Text 401-285-1182 or 617-901-3434

Questions and answers

 

Do you perform inspections for FHA loans?
My comprehensive report including pictures for documentation has been used by  VA/FHA transactions allowing the client to receive a complete home inspection and report while still meeting the minimum required by the VA/FHA.

How do you inspect the roof?
We will inspect every roof under safe conditions as written in the Standards of Practice. We will inspect the roof from either on top of the roof itself, the ground with binoculars, on a ladder at the eave of the roof. We also will inspect where the most important information can be found under the roof in the attic or crawl space. Roofs are not made to walk on and can be damaged from walking on them so every effort is made to preserve the life of the roof while providing detailed information to the client. This method is used by all home inspectors and has proven to be effective and accurate when evaluating the condition and material on the roof.

Do you inspect for mold?
Although mold inspection can be performed by a mold remediation company it can be a costly. I perform a visual mold inspection in the places that can be seen and where mold usually is a problem. Most mold problems are located in the attic, basement, crawl spaces, behind insulation and walls. We can visually check these places and others for signs of mold. I will include the findings and make recommendations for action on your detailed report at no additional charge.

Do you inspect for insects?
Although insect inspection can be performed by an exterminating company it can be costly. I perform a visual inspection for wood destroying insects or signs of previous treatment. I will include the findings and my recommendation for action on your detailed report at no additional charge.

How long will it take to have my home inspected?
The average home inspection takes between 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Then another 2 to 3 hours to create a fully detailed report complete with pictures. Depending on the work schedule you will have your report the same or next day.

Who can attend my home inspection?
Anyone can attend your home inspection as long as it is cleared with the seller and the listing agent prior to the inspection. Usually this is handled by the seller’s realtor. You are welcome to follow me around and ask questions but understand there is a procedure to follow to ensure a thorough and comprehensive inspection is performed. This will be outlined at the beginning of the home inspection.

What type of report do you use?
I have found HomeGauge is the most comprehensive and easy report to follow. This is an electronically generated report that will include pictures of any concerns that may be listed in the report. Any concerns found will be listed in an easy to follow step by step format. I will also include recommendations on how to proceed when addressing those concerns. 

A detailed report is a critical part of your home purchase, providing detailed information with pictures which can then be reviewed with the seller. Home Gauge also offers a "Review List" feature that allows you to only send the issues to review with the home owner keeping it simple and to the point. This is a great tool for realtors alike in saving them time. A report can average between 30 to 60 pages and is a great tool to keep as a future reference. 

Can I contact you after the home inspection is completed for advise on my new home.
I will always be available to be contacted at any time and make every effort to help you decide on what course of action you will need to solve an issue of concern involving the maintenance, repair or upkeep of your new home.

What is the easiest method to reach you?
A phone call, text or email will get the fastest results. I am on job sites or in front of the computer doing reports most of every day. I don’t have much time for social media or other alternative methods of communication. But I do keep my smart phone with me at all times and can usually respond within the hour.

Are you a private company?
Yes I am the sole owner operator of Home Tech Property Inspections, LLC. That means you get a caring and qualified proven home inspector every time and not a new hire or trainee form a corporate or franchise type company.

Do you check for Asbestos/safety concerns?
Yes we do visually check for asbestos and any other toxic type materials. I also perform several safety checks regarding all aspects of the home inspection. I will report the findings and make recommendations for action on your detailed report at no additional charge.

Why should I use Home Tech Property Inspection, LLC?

I’m experienced with New England homes of all ages and styles.
I’m friendly and trustworthy and enjoy my job and answering your questions.
I use a professional detailed reporting program complete with pictures and recommendations.
I arrive on time every time and your report is generated within 24 to 48 hours.

Testimonials

Home Tech Inspected our house and was very helpful in explaining several things to us as first time home buyers. Mike is a great guy who took the time to check everything. Home Tech reports are thorough and include pictures and details. This enabled us to negotiate some of the problems found prior to the sale with the sellers. Thank you Home Tech.

Mr. & Mrs. Robert Parks

 

Very happy with my home inspection by Home Tech. The report is so professional and easy to read. It includes all aspects of the inspection with pictures for back up. I will save the report for future use in order to keep my new home in good working order. Home Tech is highly recommended.
Thank you,
Lisa Thomas

 

We purchased an older home because we loved the character. But we didn’t know much about the homes true condition. Mike explained how he has done so many older homes that he has learned what to look for. His experience has saved us a lot of time and money. His reports showed us exactly what we were getting into and became a real bargaining tool for us. I would recommend utilizing Home tech Property Inspections to anyone purchasing a home.
Sincerely,
Joseph Manny

 

Called several home inspection companies. Home Tech was the most reasonable and friendly. They offered several incentives that others wanted to charge for. In the end I was very satisfied and glad I made the right choice.
Marie Fernandez

 

I don’t usually write reviews but I was so impressed with the level of service that I decided to this time. I have used other home inspection companies in the past and have been disappointed in what I experienced. However, Home Tech is the real deal. Mike truly cares about his customers and will bend over backwards to make sure you have a hassle free experience in your new home. About time I found an inspection company I can trust.
